I don't think so, because it simply tints the whole image. We'd need to change the outline color independent of the interior color, on a gray background, and with anti-aliasing preserved. Try

(SugarLibrary default imageFor: #keep color: Color red grayOutColor: nil) asMorph openInHand

which results in a reddish icon (using another color for nil seems to make the whole icon red).
